Xiaomi Mi 6 finally gets an Android 8.0 Oreo update via MIUI 9.2.3 Global Stable ROM. The update is being rolled out via over-the-air (OTA) to each and every Mi 6 running on the latest stock firmware. To remind you, Xiaomi Mi6 is the company’s flagship smartphone announced in April last year running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with MIUI 8 on top. Last month, the company rolled out the beta version of Android 8.0 Oreo update and today Mi 6 users start receiving a stable version. The company also released the kernel source code to the public.
Xiaomi has officially confirmed the MIUI 9.2.3 flavored Oreo update for Mi 6 through a post on its official MIUI forum. With this, the Mi 6 becomes the first company handset to get the taste of the Oreo update. Although, Xiaomi Mi A1 also received Oreo update but the case is entirely different as it is an Android One device launched in partnership with Google.
As it is a major upgrade, it brings several new features including Picture-in-Picture (PiP), Smart Autofill, redesigned home page, Asphalt themes, and other core Android Oreo features. It includes optimizations for the preloaded Dial pad, Recents section, notification alerts, swipe gestures, and folders.
